ID on datura

Desirai(7B)March 11, 2013

Can any of you ID a datura just by looking at the seeds?

I received some seed pods, they were prickly, and it popped open to reveal pretty yellow seeds growing just like they do in a bell pepper.

I've attached a picture I found on the internet

The pod and seeds from my single white look just the same. She has a fabulous fragrance at night - sweet citrus. The seed pods on my double purple were spineless with purple and green coloring (little or no fragrance).

Sorry, I don't know the correct name. The seeds weren't identified when I got them.

I have some single white that have seed pods that look exactly like that. Could be Inoxia, but could also be Datura Wrightii. From what I understand, there are only subtle differences in the two. I wish that I could tell you the differences, but it's going to take someone more knowledgeable than I.
